This service has automated systems that take feeds from various sources, primarily RSS or ATOM, and can send items over to other services.
To explain it, let's go over one route in dlvr.it.
Each dlvr.it account holds multiple "routes" where a route is a description of taking content from a Source, perhaps modifying the content, then sending items to a destination. What's shown here is the route handling items from my blog, Electric Race News, where I write about electric racing.
On the left is the RSS feed for the blog. On the right is the destinations to which Electric Race News items get posted.
Each route can be configured with some settings. For example to filter the Source items if you only want to publish a subset of them.
Each source also can be given settings, such as filters to select a subset of items, but there are many more options for per-source settings.
You can also configure a route with multiple sources. The route gloms together all sources for sending items to the destinations.
In other words, dlvr.it has a pretty flexible system for declaring sources for content items. The next step is to post those items somewhere.
As we've seen above, you can post the items to multiple destinations.
The dlvr.it service supports a long list of possible destinations.
You'll also see here that my account is maxed out on the number of destinations. Their freemium model means you can use 'n' destinations for free, another amount of destinations by paying $50 a year, and so forth. At the level I'm willing to pay for, I get 15 social network destinations.
Each destination also has settings to control how the content appears. As shown here, the content items can get prefixes or suffixes depending on the destination.comments powered by Disqus
